It's fun, it's quirky and it's different! Experience the sights and sounds of central London on land and river in an action packed amphibious adventure. Departing from Belvedere Road SE1(near to the London Eye) our Ducks drive past famous London landmarks before a dramatic launch into the River Thames from our slipway.

The tour guides they hire for these trips know a lot about their city and have a very humorous way of telling their stories. This is great fun for kids and adults,

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively

Hello, Could you tell me how far the tour goes in the water? Would this replace a Thames River cruise? Also, if we come in November would the sides be down or up? If down, can we see through them? What is the best bus stop near the starting location? Thank you

Hello I'm just wondering where the tour ends and how long it takes. I'm trying to plan a day where we want to do the duck tour, the London dungeons and the eye and trying to figure out the best time and order to book each attraction. Thanks
